Jazz After Hours with Don Wooten

Jan 1, 1970

Saturday nights at 10:00 pm

Don Wooten plays two hours of jazz from the WVIK library. Jazz After Hours is the oldest jazz program in Quad cities radio. It began in the fall of 1950, with co-hosts Don Wooten and Jack Payne (leader of the Ambassadors, a local band) on WHBF. After Jack quit the program in 1951, Wooten remained the host through 1971. The program was revived when WVIK went on the air in 1980.
